JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A jury has been selected for a man charged with shooting up a cruiser in a western Pennsylvania police station parking lot.

Cambria County prosecutors say the suspect, 46-year-old Kevin McGee, craved attention and recorded the incident in Richland Township on a portable camera he wore.

Police shot McGee after he allegedly raised his gun toward an officer and refused to drop the weapon. Police say McGee later made statements including “I own the world” and that he was “in charge of the planet and he needed respect.”

McGee’s trial in the Sept. 12, 2012 incident has been delayed by his medical recovery and questions about his mental health.

Thursday’s jury selection occurred after he was declared mentally competent to stand trial in January.

Opening statements are scheduled for Tuesday.
